Zen Buddhism is a branch of Mahayana Buddhism. Zen emphasizes enlightenment and personal expression of direct insight. In the Zen tradition there is less emphasis on sutras or doctrine. In the western world people often talk about Zen moments. But what is a Zen moment? A Zen moment is a moment of great awareness or enlightenment. It is a moment where you begin to understand what is truly most important and deserving of ones attention in life. Zen moments occur during times when we place lots of effort into completing a task and in the end have nothing tangible to show for it. This Sunday’s service host Ryan Terry will present a few Zen moments from his life and also ask members of the congregation to share some of their personal Zen Moments with the group.
